I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in New Jersey. When I'm not photographing the sweetest couples around, you can find me watching the latest episode of Fixer Upper, listening to country music, or going exploring with my love, Ryan. We're always up for a new adventure!

I'm TORI PETRILLO.

I’m so excited to share that Brittany and Ian’s golden hour engagement session at Cross Estate Garden has been featured in Contemporary Weddings Magazine! Flipping through the pages at Barnes & Noble yesterday morning felt all sorts of surreal (and I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t buy every copy on display!). The Spring […]

I met up with Angie & Dennis a couple of weeks ago for their engagement session in New York City! While we were planning for their session, Angie sent me pictures of a rooftop deck near Columbus Circle with incredible views of Central Park. I’m almost positive that I was grinning from ear to ear […]

Do Chris & Alyssa look familiar? You might have seen them on the blog a couple of months ago when I photographed their proposal at Deep Cut Gardens! When Alyssa told me that she and Chris were thinking about having their engagement session in DUMBO, my ears perked up. I had only been to DUMBO […]

When Chris first contacted me a few months ago about photographing his proposal, I couldn’t have been more excited! He decided on Deep Cut Gardens as the location, which made for the most magical backdrop for such a special moment. After Alyssa said yes (of course!), we explored and took photos all throughout Deep Cut […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I LOVE when my clients choose an engagement session location that’s meaningful to them — and that’s exactly what Ellesa and Kevin chose to do! It always makes the session all the more special. Ellesa and Kevin both met and graduated from Kean University. Having spent […]

What a whirlwind of a weekend for weddings! I travelled from Sparta all the way down to Asbury Park and photographed four (yes, four!) weddings for some sweet couples along the way. It’s always so interesting to see the different venues, color schemes, themes, and unique traditions that each couple incorporates into their wedding day. […]

I’ve always said that one of the best parts of my job is getting to meet new people and learn all about them. I tend to ask a lot of questions during engagement sessions because I’m genuinely interested in getting to know my couples! It’s always so much fun to hear about how they met […]

I’m so excited to be kicking off this Friday morning with Sarah and Hugh’s cherry blossom filled engagement session at Branch Brook Park. We had such a blast! As soon as we entered the park, all we could see was a sea of pink trees for MILES. No exaggeration! Between Sarah & Hugh’s fun loving […]
